  • Gorgeous house and stunning views!

    "This house was gorgeous inside and out- it had fantastic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows on the mountain facing side (including the two-story living room), and a stunning breakfast bar (likely made from a tree from the property, though I'm not sure on that one!). The rooms were all good-sized and most had their own temperature control so everyone could stay comfortable, and the three full bathrooms were useful for large groups. We had stunning views of the foliage, and I can imagine it being gorgeous in the winter or summer as well! Our group of 9 adults was very comfortable, and I think another one or two could have stayed without anyone needing a top bunk; for families with teens or children, 13 would be comfortable. The owner was accommodating and responsive to work with on our stay. The only cons/things to be aware of: the walls were on the thin side so conversations carry pretty well through the house - we turned our fan on so it took a lot of noise to bother us, though! Also, 4WD is recommended in the winter but the driveway is pretty steep - those of us with manual transmissions got the trick down pretty quickly of hitting the driveway in second gear to make it up all the way, but I would drive an automatic if you can! Overall, we had an awesome, fun stay, and thought the house was better than the wedding venue :-)"

  • Perfect getaway

    "I brought my husband here as a surprise for his 40th birthday. His eyes POPPED when we drove up. The house is so gorgeous, smells like a cedar chest, and is so relaxing! We did a quick grocery run at the local store in Bethel (about 15 minutes away) but there was spices, coffee filters, olive oil, etc at the cabin. We enjoyed our coffees on the porch each morning and soaked in the sun in the afternoons. We ventured out a few times to eat. I would recommend pizza at "Home Slice Pizza" (VERY GOOD) and the gelato at "DiCocoa's" (If you are a vegetarian, get a little of everything to eat....no kidding. That's what I did!) Scott sent instructions for a hiking trail off of the road, but we never ended up finding it (we bushwhacked most of the time. hahaha). We took the kayaks out another day and were the only ones on the lake. There was a full moon one night and sitting on the deck, listening to the loons, with the full moon shining...pure magic. Although the point was to unplug and get away, my husband was able to watch the patriots game (although the remote didn't work, we figured it out through the tv)"

  • Worth every penny... and more.

    "It's always a crapshoot when you rent a house unseen. 24 previous 5-star ratings was almost too good to be true, but in the absence of any first-hand experience, it was all we had to go on. I am happy to be the 25th 5-star fan, and I'm no pushover. The last place we rented (February vacation in Colorado) got 2 stars out of me. Everything about the house says the owner cares - really cares. Everything was AT LEAST as good as advertised. It was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and impressively stocked. There was nothing that you could need that wasn't there and easy to find. The owner has a spectacular housekeeping service that maintains everything in great order. When was the last time you switched on a lamp containing a 3-way bulb, and all three settings worked? This doesn't even happen in my own house! And yet, every lamp I used had a properly-functioning 3-way bulb. This is superb attention to detail in my opinion. Anne's home was ours. She trusts people enough to put everything 'out there'. Rather than hide things for fear of damage or theft, she provides everything as if she were having her own family stay there. It is all thoroughly clean and orderly, with instructions for everything. Top shelf. This is a find. I will be back many times, I expect, and year-round. I would live there if I had the chance. Anne - you are a gem of a person, with all your personal attention to everything, and your very personable manner in all emails and notes. My best regards to Bob and Peg who care for the place. I believe I will likely never have a rental experience this good ever again - except at the House on the Hill."

  • Just the wedding they wanted.

    "I'm not sure I can find the words to describe my first reaction to Mountain House, I had seen photos but they had not prepared me for how stunning this property really is. Anyone looking for a beautiful outdoor setting for a wedding, family reunion, or any other occasion where you might need to put up a number of people I would without hesitation recommend this venue. It is obvious by how beautifully kept the grounds are, to to the cleanliness of the homes themselves that Julie and Frank pride themselves on maintaining a first rate establishment. I wish everyone the same wonderful experience that my family had!"
